I put on a 16 tooth counter shaft sprocket on my klr 250 today. It seems to do well and cruising at 70 mph is a breeze at 7000 rpm...that's about 900 rpm lower than before. I am pleased with it. Has anyone else done this?

well..it redlines at about 9,500 rpm..so 7,000 isn't excessive...not for a 250 at least.

What kind of mpg do you get out of that 250?

I have not owned it long enough to know for sure yet..but so far about 65 mpg..pretty much all city miles.

I added mini turn signals to replace the broken originals today. The make a big difference in the appearance of the bike...it looks even more like a dirt bike with signals now. :50: I also took the baffle out of the pipe, adjusted the carb, and shortened the snorkel (I had taken it out, but it was too loud).
